President John Mahama has officially launched the 2016 NDC manifesto in Sunyani, Brong Ahafo region ahead of the December polls.

The manifesto which is themed “Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana,” captures what the party calls its strategic plans to move the country forward in terms of development.

Speaking at the launch of the manifesto on Saturday, the president said the manifesto is: “The authentic blueprint with which we envision the transformation of our country in the next four years. We are poised to change more lives and to transform Ghana."

He said: “What we launch today is not a catalogue of lofty promises woven together to entice the electorate for votes as others want to do but a product of months of careful and diligent work by some of the finest brains our nation can boast of.”

The president said the manifesto “captures what the NDC plans to do to move the nation into the next level. It is a document that has content steeped in vision and pragmatism. It speaks to the aspiration of the people while confronting our reality as a nation.”

President John Dramani Mahama earlier on Tuesday [September 13] presented to a cross-section of Ghanaians, the highlights of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Manifesto for 2016.

President Mahama during his presentation said he has plans to increase the number of administrative regions if he wins the upcoming elections. He also promised to rework the National Health Insurance Scheme with oil money if given the nod.

The NDC flag bearer reiterated what he plans to do when given the nod in the area of education, health, infrastructural development, among others during the manifesto launch on Saturday.

He touted what he calls improved life expectancy rate, which according to him is second to Cape Verde in Africa.

He said the NHIS is growing from strength to strength and will be sustained even further with petroleum revenue.

The president argued that his party has been tremendous in the fight against corruption and "will continue to fight corruption wherever we find it."

He, therefore, urged the people of the Brong Ahafo region, whom he called in-laws (as his wife's home region is B/A) to come out in their numbers and vote for him to enable the party gain a one-touch victory in the December polls.
